oH no, is disaster, Nugget now get ring with backman and Camby and Melo Anthony, Knicks is failure
* We get a draft pick, in a draft where we would have otherwise had no picks because of marbury.
* We get rid of a small foward and a player that would not have gotten much minutes
* We will waive the scubs for nothing, and get down to a 15 man roster
* We shave cap space, no matter how big or small, cap space is good.
* Balkmans offense will not fit Dantoni's system because he cant shoot.
So b4 u go so quickly to go off on the mouth, think b4 u post.
and change ur sig. cant u find arroyo crossing up another team????
chandler > balkman
gallo > balkman
q rich > balkman
its impossible to pull this off with jefferies and rose because they make a lot of money, we would have to take 1 or 2 salaries and donnie doesnt want any contracts past 2010.....
sometimes metro understands this concept, other times he doesnt.....i dont know why....the salary game is simple
Toons, stop crying.
* draft pick is good
* having balkman would be good depth, you never know if Chandler or Gallinari get injured
* We could of waived Collins and send Jerome James to retirement for roster space.
* Shaving insignifcant cap space will get us under the cap. Moving Crawford, Randolph, Jefferies and Curry would do that.
* You are ignorant of Balkman's offense. Balkman's best offense is when he's in he fastbreak. He's elite at running the floor and scoring and passing.
Balkman would of been a great fit, he forces a lot of turnovers which leads to fastbreak points. These are facts we can't deny. Balkman was an asset an we lost an asset.
Take the biggest loser in the NBA who's done nothing but brought ***** soft no defense clown basketball to NYC out of your sig, but then again it symbolizes who you are.
is total discgrace that balkman is gone to Denver Nuget he was great fast player is move down fast court with skills and throw down rock for thunder dunking, by defence he is like Ron Atrest for Indiana Pacer and now we say to nugget here, have Balkman for nothings, we take this 2 bad player and throw them away, is make no sense, don walsh is like isiah thonms is total ruining of the knick, no ring for knick now balkman is gone istead Melo Anthonys celbrating in Denver Nugget when they have champinships
Here's my problem with the trade. It essentially means the team gave up on their first round draft pick from 2 years ago. In essence, that pick from not so long ago becomes what amounts to a waste of time and energy. I never like quitting on my first round picks that quickly, and that's essentially what happened right here. It's just a tough pill for me to swallow in that this pick from not so long ago amounts to a total waste.
On the other hand, Gallinari is supposed to be tough as nails, essentially the way I understand it we got, in Big ****, a Balkman with offense. Does that make Big **** a waste of a pick this year? No, I don't think so. Taurean Green isn't bad, though I doubt he will play for us, and a second round pick is essentially useless, except for the fact that we don't have a first rounder next year.
I like Balkman, it just sucks to think that our 1st round pick two years ago we essentially gave up on after a little promise.
to say dirk hasnt watched the NBA is years, hes got it pretty spot on!!!!!
welcome to the forum!
Will we ever win a championship again? Id like to think so!
Getting Duhon i think will have more purpose for next season due to the fact that Steph would be gone and Nate isnt trusted as a true point guard. But it could still work, yes we have alot of PG's but do we have any SG's to back up Crawford? Not really, one of the forwards or pointguards have to play SG eventually cuz Jamal isnt gonna play 40 minutes a game anymore. He'll probably use Q Rich or Marbury at the 2 leaving minutes for Duhon and Nate to play PG and Roberson will be in their a couple minutes a day to shoot some shots when they need him(the roberson part has been his reported to be his duty so far).
Now the Balkman scenerio is quit simple, we had to many players with 16 and had to get rid of one. Signing Anthony Roberson forced us to give up one guy before the season began and Balkman was that guy. Now you can say "oh give up James or Jeffries", first off now one would want them and if u buy them out your still losing money. And the Zach deal was bullshyt, you dont trade a 20/10 guy for a 2nd round pick, Walsh isnt as dumb as Isiah and he realized that Zach's trade value could go up keeping him for a little while longer. Walsh is most likely going to release the two former nugget players because this deal was for cap space a 2nd round pick. And it was reported that Walsh would make 2 million more after this deal, i dont know how but that was the report on espn radio. Walsh is slowly molding a team to be in the clear financially and a team that would work good together chemistry wise with Mike D. MIke D and Donnie Walsh are the opposites of Isiah Thomas and we cant possibly be worse than when Isiah was there so what are u worried about?
